I know for a fact she sent a few people a story through PMs on another forum - http://forums.buddytv.com/ - but since that's private, there's no way to find out what she sent.  I'm sure it was something she stole, but the people who post on that forum are the same people who defended her on Twitter, so it's not like asking them would do any good.  They think her evil twin from a parallel universe plagiarized under name.  *head desk*

Yup, I think that's how she'll just always end up doing her thing. She'll wait until everyone thinks she's gone and then she'll pop up on another forum. I think she knows to stay away from ours now though! lol

does she actually have anything real? Anything that she actually wrote and didn't steal? I'd be very curious to see what her writing is like. Do you think she's learned anything from all the wonderful stories she's copied over the years?

Not that I know of.

And honestly, just from reading her posts on forums and Twitter and stuff, I can't imagine she would be that bad of a writer if she gave it a shot.  Her English isn't bad, for someone who doesn't speak it as a first language, and it's not like she can't structure a coherent thought.  And if you can come up with a story and tell it coherently, you can write!  It's sad that she puts so much effort into stealing other people's stories when, if she'd actually been trying to write her own for the past three years, she would probably be a pretty decent writer by now.

Yeah, she added me a long time ago actually. I had no idea who she was. I know what she looks like now. She's in her 30s but looks younger. 34 I think.

Hm... if that's the same person, she's been lying about her age too then.  Her profiles everywhere else say she's in her 20s.
